Family Life Home and Abroad
The Monkey as a Parent
Monkey parents can be more like big brothers and sisters than actual parents. They retain their child-like qualities and therefore find it easier to relate to their children than other people might. Monkey parents don’t experience the generation gap other families might, partly because they remember what it is like to be a child. However, becoming a parent can cramp a Monkey’s style. They are not ones to stay inside, helping with homework on a Friday night. They would prefer to be out and about, and sometimes take their children with them if it’s appropriate.
The Monkey as a Child
Young Monkeys are full of life. They are vivacious and colorful characters, curious about everything in life. They can’t stay still for long and concentrating is not always easy. In school they are sharp and intellectual, finding schoolwork easy to do. However, they can be the class clown, but not without consequences. Their antics can be disturbing to other children, which can land them in a heap of trouble.
The Monkey as a Friend
Monkeys are sociable and lovable and make good friends. As they desire attention, they generally have a grand following of friends and acquaintances. No other animal finds communication and talking with others quite as easy as the Monkey does. As friends they will make you laugh when you want to cry. People want their Monkey friends around them because of their wit, sensitivity and effervescence.
The Monkey at Home
Most Monkeys enjoy the activity offered by the city life rather than the quiet and tranquility offered in a more rural lifestyle. They crave being in the middle of things, enjoying life from a spectator’s view. They also enjoy people-watching and can amuse themselves for hours at a time by just watching the people walk by. They need a view, and their homes are usually filled with windows and picturesque drawings.
The Monkey on Vacation
Monkey people love taking so much that they need to be surrounded by people constantly. For vacations they are drawn to the hot spots, nightclubs, bars and big city lights. A Monkey’s luck may encourage him to try his hand somewhere like Las Vegas or Atlantic City.
The Monkey At Work
A Monkey’s good memory and his ability to adapt are two of his most prized possessions. He is intelligent and stoic, able to pick new trades up quickly and easily. Monkeys are also able to do all the work in half the time it takes someone else, but will charge you double what someone else would charge. As such, Monkeys generally take occupations in the world of finance, such as banking, stock exchange or accounting.
Monkeys believe being sick is a waste of time. They don’t want to spend their days in bed. They want to experiencing the flavors of life. Usually, Monkeys are very healthy creatures, partly due to their active lifestyles. If they do experience illness, it is usually of the nervous or circulatory system.
Money and The Monkey
Monkeys are just as good as spending money as they are at making it. They can’t really save it because it burns a hole in their pockets. Occasionally though, Monkeys should put a little away today for an emergency tomorrow.
